Environmental Planning and Historic Preservation

Potential impacts to the environment and cultural resources must be considered when a community applies for FEMA funding through Public AssistanceHazard Mitigation Assistance and Preparedness Grants.

Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP)

Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) is a national FEMA program that works with states, tribes, territories and local communities to evaluate and better understand their current flood risk, as well as the actions that can be taken to mitigate and become more resilient against future risk.

Publications

FEMA Region 8 has developed a number of documents to provide useful information to the public on topics such as hazard mitigation and emergency preparedness. The region also creates reports and studies following major disaster events.

NFIP Flood Mapping Projects

FEMA works with communities throughout Region 8 to update and improve flood maps to provide the best flood risk information available. This allows communities and individuals to make informed decisions regarding where and how to build in a way that protects lives and property.

One of the final steps in the mapping process is a release of preliminary maps for all in the community to review.  With this release, there is a 90-day appeal period, during which community members can appeal flood hazard information that they believe is in error.

Appeal packages must be submitted during the 90-day appeal period. Appeals must have supporting scientific or engineering data that show the information on the preliminary maps to be incorrect.

Visit FloodMaps for further details on the process.

Preliminary mapping also may be viewed on FEMA’s Map Service Center.
